While tucking in to the buffet style lunch you’re lucky enough to be given a private viewing of one of SeaWorld’s Killer Whales while an instructor gives you a cracking educational about the majestic creature.

oat-banner-2

Hey Thrill Seekers,

This year will be Universal Orlando’s 24th Halloween Horror Nights! The scare spectacular is generally regarded as the daddy of all Halloween nights.

hhn24banner

We often get asked if Halloween Horror Nights is really that scary? In a word “yes”… Universal pride themselves on being the biggest and the best, this isn’t Disney people.

To get a good idea you should read Karl Hendrie’s review of last years event or alternatively you can watch this video which gives you a glimpse at what you can expect.

Halloween Horror Nights is a separately ticketed event, which doesn’t come with your normal theme park tickets. Universal offers two types of ticket for entry, they are;

The Universal 2 park bonus Halloween Horror Nights Ticket and the Halloween Horror Nights Frequent Fear Pass.

You can purchase these at Orlando Attraction Tickets or Theme Park Tickets Direct both offer real gate ready tickets.

Morning Thrill Seekers,

As I mentioned yesterdayall this week on the stroke of midnight, Universal Orlando are revealing a new house for this years Halloween Horror Nights.

On Monday Universal revealed La Llorona based on the Mexican folk tale “The Weeping Women” to mixed reactions. The overall vibe from visitors is that they want to see some original houses, basically content not based on a Universal owed film…

Universal appear to have listened with their latest reveal… Afterlife: Death’s Vengeance.

Afterlife Deaths Vengeance

Here’s what Universal said about Afterlife: Death’s Vengeance;

Witness the brutal vengeance of his victims as they turn his afterlife into an inescapable hell…

This fall, 2000 volts of electricity are going to send serial killer, Bobby “The Blade” Galleta into a horrific realm of suffering at HHN23 in this new, original haunted house, Afterlife: Death’s Vengeance.

This reveal seems to have made many people happy with comments like “Wow did not see this coming” and “Good to see an original!” just a few of the positive replies.

Here at Orlando Attraction Tickets we love the idea of some original content and we’ll keep you posted when they reveal more.

Universal Halloween Horror Nights Reveals Walking Dead House And Street Experience

Afternoon Thrill Seekers,

Universal’s social push for Halloween Horror Nights continued this week as they asked their facebook pals to vote on the next reveal. A comment would see them announce a street experience and a like would see them introduce a new house.

Well as you can imagine, the likes won, as its easier to click the facebook thumb than to write a comment. 5064 people clicked the like button with 647 people leaving a comment.

This prompted Universal to leave this cryptic clue about the next house.

cryptic clue

This prompted many comments guessing what the clue could mean…

Then at 15:30 UK time we got this….

walking dead house

You may have escaped once…but not again.
AMC’s The Walking Dead returns to HHN with a new haunted house that will place YOU at the heart of the prison and into the town of Woodbury.

The big news however was that Universal have decided that The Walking Dead will also be the whole Street Experience.

And we thought we’d go ahead and reveal the street experience too. For the first time ever, we’re dedicating the entire HHN street experience to AMC’s The Walking Dead. Around every corner you will encounter iconic scenes from all 3 seasons of the show, while trying to avoid blood-thirsty walkers.

So what do you think of Universal’s announcement, has it got you excited, scared or something else?

Universal To Reveal Identity Of Next Halloween Horror Nights House Soon

Morning Thrill Seekers,

With the sun shining and the promise of at least another week of glorious weather, you’re forgiven for not being fully focused on Universal’s Halloween Horror Nights…

However this morning Universal gave a clue to the identity of its next house… Recently we posted that one of Universal houses will definitely be based on Cabin in the Woods and we were pretty impressed with their social efforts at teasing the announcement.

Here at Orlando Attraction Tickets we are pretty sure we’ve guessed the identity of house number 2…. here’s the clue

hhn23 new

Now for those not totally up on their horror films we are pretty sure this points towards an Evil Dean house… Which is great, HHN fans have been requesting this for ages so it should make them very happy, if they include an Insidious house they will have ticked all the requested boxes…

You can purchase tickets to this event at www.orlandoattractiontickets.co.uk; the most popular ticket is the 2-Park Bonus Halloween Horror Nights Ticket which includes entry in to HHN, Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure. Alternatively for those who’ve already purchased tickets for Universal and Islands of Adventure, you can always buy the Halloween Horror Nights Frequent Fear Pass.

Universal’s Halloween Horror Reveal Details Of First House

Morning Thrill Seekers,

The Daddies of specialist Halloween nights are at it again!

This year will see Universal Orlando host their 23rd Halloween Horror Night and as with every year we’ve been trying to guess their theme.

Last year had a “Walking Dead” theme which was truly frightening, so we’ve been waiting to see what they’ll come up with. Last night Universal revealed details of one of the houses and here’s how they did it via social media.

Firstly they posted this picture;

500 shares HHN

The caption read

Can you see what’s there? If this photo gets 500 SHARES, we will post a more clear view of a clue to the first house of HHN 23.

The image ended up being shared a total of 1474!!

True to their word Universal then posted this picture…

I dare you HHN

Not much clearer, but within the description Universal quoted the following;

“I dare you…”

More to come before midnight…

Facebook went berserk with guesses of what the theme could be based on what everyone assumed was a quote from a film.

The 3rd image was a little less blurry;

do NOT read Latin HHN

And simply read

“Do NOT read the Latin!”

Then finally just before midnight they released this image;

#hhn23

With no comment, but no one need it…..

The first house revealed for Halloween Horror Nights is…

HHN Cabin in the woods

My excitement levels just hit the roof….

You can purchase Halloween Horror Night tickets from Orlando Attraction Tickets where we offer;

Other rumoured houses include (but have not be verified), The Evil Dead, Insidious and a Scream house!

What would you like to see at Halloween Horror Nights?
